Btw, I believe this thread could be closed by core team with just one message like 
"We are not going to allow Codable have a special 'deriving'-like keyword at the 
moment of conformance to produce auto-synthesized requirement, and so 
Equatable/Hashable will not have such. This decision was made and will not be changed."
Right now it seems like core team is reading different opinions regarding this 
subject and so probably(I hope) this discussion has a sense.
